ON THE ROAD
L’Occitane Fresh Shower Gel, 200ml, $28
THIS Mint Verbena gel in a squeezy tube by popular French company L’Occitane smells fresh and fruity and almost fizzes on the skin. It contains sprinklings of ‘‘pearls’’ that melt on contact with water; T&I put it to the test and the result was a gentle but invigorating exfoliation for a super-cleansed feel. Also in the Mint Verbena collection is Body Ice Gel (250ml, $39), perfect for hot-weather meltdowns. Other products to look for are Citrus Verbena or Green Citrus Verbena, some available as limited editions. More: (02) 8912 3000; au.loccitane.com.
